The OmiGroup is drinking heavily tonight.
It's not that Matt dislikes OmniFocus, it's rather that he exposed lots of significant design issues. His conclusion ...
... If OmniFocus were a public beta, I'd be unhesitating: "Go for it!" I'd cry ... But OmniFocus isn't a beta, and its price seems out of proportion to the state of its development.Ouch! I've been hoping the OmniGroup would implement a great iPhone OmniFocus client with sync support (assuming Apple allows it) to desktop OmniFocus. Matt's review sets that hope back a bit.
The good news is that he had lots of serious suggestions. The next version of OmniFocus might be a great improvement.
(PS. Matt, before there was In Control there was GrandView - the preeminent app combining columns and outlines. I think in the early days of dBase Borland's Reflex had some similar tricks, but I don't see that mentioned in a delightfully old review -- those were the days.)
